"WePod" Mockup - R/GA Mobile Music Contest
Cassette Tape  --->  Compact Disc  --->  MiniDisc  --->  Storage Based.... What is next?

Soon you'll be able to listen to any music, anytime, anywhere on the planet without having to purchase and download files. Just add music to your library or playlists without worrying about storage space. Share your music with friends. Explore and find new music through a social network.

Music On Demand

You pay a subscription to iTunes or your provider of choice and receive streamed songs on demand. Add them to your library or playlists just like a download only you never have to worry about filling up a hard-drive again. A music search would find songs streamed from music blogs as well so you can find those rare remixes and mash-ups.

Social Aspects

You set up a profile and can pick which playlists you'd like to share with the world. Search to find what Thom Yorke or Tom Hanks are listening to today or at the moment. Add Tom Hanks's songs and playlists to your library. Share music with friends and even find out what that girl sitting across from you on the subway is listening to and add her songs to your playlist without having to speak a word. Suddenly music is a much more open experience for everyone to share. Its sharing, experiencing and learning about new music like never before.

Possible Device Executions
